Repeat after me... Slow an steady wins the race

Saturday, September 15, 2012

In this world of instant gratification weight-loss is assumed to just HAPPEN. Eat better than you have in years,workout at the gym either at all or harder than you ever have before, drink enough water to sink the Titanic or at least wear a path to the bathroom (making people at work wonder) and the pounds should just melt away. Right?
I wish that were true for me. I started with Weight watchers in March and lost 20 pounds fairly easily (3 months) but since then, the pounds have been sticking with me. I have only lost 8 lbs in the last 3 months. I rarely eat any junk food and stay within my 1200 - 1500 calorie plan I workout everyday and most time twice a day but still the pounds stay.
I have almost turned to quick fix diet ideas advertised on TV but I am to old and wise to fall for that stuff. I have gone down from being between a 16 to an 18 pants size to between a 12 and 14 which is wonderful but still..........
What will it take to break through this plateau????
If it lasts much longer I will go see my doctor (it's time for a yearly physical anyway) but in the mean time REPEAT AFTER ME,,,, SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE!

    I know just how you feel, as I've hit a plateau myself, but refuse to let it bring me down. Keep working on your goals, and eating healthy. I know it seems the hard work isn't gonna show, but when you least expect it, you'll see a loss. emoticon Don't give up! emoticon

    Plateau's will occur. It's your body adjusting to your new weight. Lay off the sugary or salty treats and by all means sodas - make sure you are drinking at least 8 full glasses of water daily. You WILL break that plateau! May God bless your efforts, Earl emoticon
